why do job applications expect us to convince them that we are the Best and Most Interesting Most Productive person who is Driven to Exceed Expectations
I am just ok and most people are just ok and most people looking for a part time wage job are just looking for a job where they can make money
very few people are naturally driven to have a Slavish Devotion to the Customer and most service work jobs are so shitty that even already-nice people have to pretend to be nicer than they actually are
like yes, I appreciate that you don’t want to hire an asshole, but I’m just an ok, slightly friendly dude and it makes me uncomfortable to have to falsely assert that I love all people and want to help them sooooooo much just so I can get a job delivering pizzas or something
I did not get home from work until 5:30am. I did not fall asleep until nearly 7:00am. I awoke at 8:00am to take the car in for an oil change. Hassles have followed me around most of the day, as has a dreadful mood hanging above my head like a cartoon rain cloud, black and ominous.
I am stupidly tired. Like, not entirely sure what or why I’m typing right now level of tired.
I miss the desert, camping in it, feeling the sand fall through my fingers, sleeping under the stars and lighting fireworks in the great expanse where no one can be offended or bothered by your fun. Scorching hot days and only slightly cooler nights, turning up the radio and soaking in the universe beaming down on you. Good times.
I have the next five days off, unless I get called in at some point between now and then, and I am traveling to a comic book store tomorrow.
Also, a nap. I am napping. Because a nap sounds pretty damn wonderful right now. Nappy-nap nap-nap. This guy. Sorry, I forgot to ask who has two thumbs and likes naps. This guy.
“I’m so glad those stitches are out, fucking hell. I had the urge to scratch my head all the time, it’s awful. But hey, now I finally can go to my hair dressers and fix this birds nest I called hair these days. Anyways - what are we ordering? Your pick, it’s on me. I’m just unusually hungry, make up your mind already, there are only so many pizzas in this world.”
